Realtors use the Multiple Listing Service to view properties that are on the market in a particular locale. The MLS is divided into sections for easier searching, and those sections loosely follow school district boundaries, as well as logical dividing lines like streets, and different area classifications like urban/suburban/rural.
As Colorado Springs has grown, especially to the northeast, the MLS areas needed to be broken up into smaller sections, so recently the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors debuted two new areas on the north and east parts of town: there’s now a Marksheffel and a Falcon North area.
The new Marksheffel area takes over part of what used to be the Falcon area. It covers the huge planned development of Banning Lewis Ranch, which has been slow to start but will someday cover thousands of acres. There’s also now a Falcon North area, which covers more of the actual [unincorporated] town of Falcon. The Falcon area now covers mostly rural area, as well as Schriever AFB.
There was also a small change to the Briargate and Black Forest areas. It straightened out the map for Briargate to include an area northwest of the intersection of Woodmen and Black Forest Road. That area was already part of Academy School District 20 so it makes sense to include it in the MLS area that includes most of the rest of D20.
If you’re interested, you can search the Colorado Springs MLS by area, zip code, school district, address and more.
